This is the third installment of, My Favorite Things Make-up Series, and we are going to discuss the importance of having a FIERCE set of eyebrows!
Some of the best advice I ever got was to NEVER underestimate the power of an eyebrow. Or maybe it was to never trust someone with bad eyebrows. Perhaps I should take that last bit of advice personally as for much of my childhood I only had one eyebrow. Shout out to Main Street Styles in Ansley for lettin’ me in on a little secret called WAXING! If it hadn’t been for those ladies I could be 36 years old with one eyebrow living in a one bedroom apartment filled with New Kids On the Block memorabilia.
My eyebrows have been through several different stages. The “skinny” stage of the 90s where my eyebrows looked like sperm. The “money saving” stage of college where I thought I could wax my own eyebrows. That stage ended with only one surviving eyebrow and about 4 weeks spent in seclusion.
I am happy to report I now have what only I can consider “adult” eyebrows. This is due in large part because I met Nicole, at Tranquility Salon and Spa in Lincoln. Better known as the, “eyebrow whisperer.” She gives life to sad eyebrows, so make an appointment, and the trip to see her. Your eyebrows will thank you. Seriously, they whisper in their little eyebrow voices, “thank you for taking me to Nicole….”
ANYWAY enough about that, and more about my favorite products for….you guessed it….eyebrows! I have tried all these products and I love all of them. I highly recommend trying them all to find your favorite!
This product is perfect if you are an “in between” shade when it comes to eyebrow color. You can use one of two shades, or both! It’s lightweight, sheer to medium coverage and smudge-proof.
Okay, we have ALL seen this product on social media somewhere. If you haven’t…google it. I bet even after what I say you will be skeptical. But I’m telling you, this is a GOOD product! First, a little bit goes a long way. Second, an eyebrow brush is necessary with this product. It dries SUPER fast so you need to make sure you comb through your eyebrows as you apply. This product is waterproof, smudge-proof, and transfer-proof. Oh…and it will last up to 3 DAYS!! Seriously, it does last that long so if you are looking for long wearing this product is your ticket!
This is by far, my favorite eyebrow product. On one end you have a pencil, on the other you have a filling power with a sponge like tip for blending. I have tried many eyebrow products and I can 100% say I will not stray from this one. It doesn’t transfer, is long wearing, and the color matches perfectly. The price isn’t too bad either!
If your eyebrows are anything like mine, they need tamed. This is the perfect product to do just that! It is a clear gel that is good for all hair colors. It sets, defines, and hold brows in place all day long!
There you have it! My favorite eyebrow products. I encourage you to discover the power of the “brow.” Or the power of two…whatever floats your boat!
PEACE, LOVE, AND BROWS!
